According to Comsco sources, he said, ‘Priyatma’s four-week gross box office collection is one hundred and twenty-six thousand dollars. Devi had one hundred and twenty-five thousand dollars.’
The achievement of ‘Priyatma’ does not end here. ‘Priyatma’ joins ‘Hawa’ for the record of five consecutive weeks in a theater in America. Like ‘Hawa’, Bangladesh’s most talked about movie ‘Priyatma’ is running in Jamaica multiplex for five consecutive weeks.
Sajib also said, not only that, the highest grossing Bangladeshi movie in a single theater in North America is now ‘Priyatma’. Gross collection of ‘Priyatma’ for four weeks at Jamaica multiplex in America: 67,104 dollars.
The previous highest grosser ‘Hawa’ grossed $63,548 in 5 weeks at multiplexes. However, the highest income in North America is occupied by ‘Hawa’. Income three hundred fifty eight thousand dollars. The next place is occupied by ‘Paran’. Income is one lakh 87 thousand dollars.
At the moment, ‘Priyatma’ is in the third position. Earned 1 lakh 12 thousand dollars in two weeks. Four weeks income is one hundred and twenty six thousand dollars. But ‘Paran’ which is in the second position is quite far away.
And ‘air’ is far away. Although these two movies were released in seventy and eighty plus theatres. ‘Priyatma’ was released in 42.
